Philosophy

We believe that Jesus Christ and the teachings of His Church are the basis for the development of the whole person and that Gehlen Catholic High School should provide an atmosphere in which each person is enabled to incorporate the principles of Christian living into daily life.

We believe that the educational process should provide the opportunity to develop the basic skills and values for survival and growth in tomorrow’s world. This includes the ability to make choices of lifestyles, goals, and careers consistent with the personal talents, abilities, and obligations of the student.

We believe it is essential to develop lifelong learning skills, which will prepare the student for his/her role in life.

We believe that at Gehlen Catholic High School, students and professional staff should strive to be a Christian community, which responds to individual needs. This community provides an atmosphere within which the student is able to develop his/her own potential, express himself/herself creatively, search for truth and come to a knowledge and understanding of faith.

We believe that parents are the primary educators of the students. Therefore, it is essential that there be an open active communication with the parents.

We believe that in the task of education, parents and the school must be involved in an active and mutually beneficial partnership with the larger community.

We believe that a student from Gehlen Catholic High School should be able to make responsible decisions based on Christian values that help to benefit humanity and shape a future that improves on the past.
